Not your fault

hi loved ones of bipolar children,

I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder about five years ago. I've attempted suicide twice. I wanted to blame it on my mom because she is an easy target but anyone who's ever drawn a Punnett square in Biology knows that this is not the case. I grew up with a wonderful support system that was so good to me it proves that this disorder is genetic.

I have a blog, , where patients and loved ones can learn from each other. I would like to discuss this guilt further because I think you'll find that we don't want you to take the blame.
